My passion for photography has lead me on a wonderful journey of exploration by adventuring into the back roads and discovering the unexpected. It has awakened and revitalized all my senses, it has enhanced my ability to experience and see life as if it was for the first time. Through my artwork I want to expose the viewer to the undiscovered beauty that lies just before our eyes.  I want to capture and preserve the grandeur that can be found in nature as well as the forgotten urban areas.
